From 7 August 2014 in the Washington Times, by Ben Wolfgang:

“With tens of thousands of Iraqi Christians and ethnic minorities facing potential slaughter by Islamist militants, the White House on Thursday wouldn’t say how — or even if — it will take further action to prevent bloodshed.

Pressed on whether it’s in America’s core interest to stop the looming genocide of tens of thousands of Yazidis trapped on a mountain in northern Iraq and surrounded by armed members of the terrorist group the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), White House press secretary Josh Earnest said President Obama still is weighing the situation.

The careful posturing by the administration came on a day of biting criticism from an influential House Republican, who hammered Mr. Obama for failing to follow through on a past promise to strengthen Washington’s ability to prevent genocide around the world.”

Then there’s this from conservative blogger Leo McNeil just this morning. So now the very actions that were called for by a conservative member of Congress means that the President of the United States has failed in Iraq. I, personally cannot wait to see just how the tone and nature of conservative political commentary changes after the 2016 election. No matter who wins I have feeling that this state American political discourse is in will evaporate, swiftly, between the election and inauguration.

Just seeing the breaking news on ABC with Martha Raddatz reporting the first American airstrikes have hit ISIS artillery positions near Erbil.
